A Reluctant Welcome: Exploring issues of push backs, treatment in detention, and living conditions for displaced people in Italy

At a critical time in Europe’s response to migration and asylum with the European Union’s New Pact on Migration in the pipeline, this report presents several concerns regarding pushbacks, treatment in detention, and living conditions for displaced people in Italy. In particular, the report raises concerns about Italy’s failure to uphold the principle of non-refoulment by engaging in summary pushbacks, as well as implementing bilateral readmission agreements without sufficient guarantees as stipulated in international human rights and refugee law.

The report is based on a briefing prepared by RRE for the UN Committee against Torture, and is based on desk research as well as substantial contributions from the non-governmental organisations Association for Juridical Studies on Immigration (ASGI), WeWorld, Diaconia Valdese, and Befree.
